    Alright so I shot in RAW for the very first time, now what?

    Looking at the Canon DPP software tutorials on youtube, the one that apparently comes free with the camera, I'm overwhelmed with the amount of tweaks and changes and alterations you can make. What are the most common tweaks / changes / alterations...if I want to play with a few but not drive...

    Alright so I shot in RAW for the very first time, now what?

    Alright so I shot in RAW for the very first time, now what? A few of them look pretty good...How do I even begin to bring out the most in them? Assume I know nothing about postprocessing RAW images because I DON'T! But I want to see what the hype is all about, I want to see these good images...

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question...

    Well that's just it. If I am not mistaken the camera was set to continuous for multiple exposure / AEB and it was still making me press and release the shutter button 3 separate times. It was very frustrating. It was on a tripod and so wanted 3 identical shots with the exception of exposure for...

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question...

    I did that. It didn't.

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question...

    To minimize camera movement they should have made it so you only had to press the button down once to take all 3 shots.

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question...

    OK I understand continuous shooting mode, but why does the camera need the timer or remote shutter release to take the 3 shots without having press the camera's shutter release button 3 times?

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question...

    6d 3 shot multiple exposure bracketing question... I have to manually take the shot 3 times, even after setting up multiple exposure / bracketing? I could not find how to take all 3 shots after pressing shutter release button one time. I should just be able to set it up for one or two stops...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    I can see a need for both. I took a few pretty nice pictures with my Galaxy S6 with a focal range of about 28mm. Maybe I'd be better off with 24, 35 and 50mm prime lenses. I have the 85mm keeper from years ago. I'll see how things go. Right now the 16-35 lens was the most logical choice for...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    I know how aperture effects depth of field. I'm just trying to think of a landscape photography situation in which you would want a f2.8 aperture for really shallow depth of field or allowing a lot of light in. Most of the time you would want deep depth of field (f8/f11/f16) and you can get the...

    I'm struggling to decide on a camera, sensor size, mirrorless or SLR...Think you can help? ;)

    When I think of used I think of "How used?"...as in, I wonder how used and spent it is, how close it is to breaking down. There is really no way of knowing that. So I feel more comfortable with a new 6D instead of a used 5D Mark X. Now some people may have done well with used gear, and some...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    I reckon that's rare, and can be made up for with a tripod and leaving the shutter open longer?

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    Gonna shoot mountain / wilderness / forest scenery. Doesn't need to be f2.8 fast, although I know there may be times I wish it were.

    I'm struggling to decide on a camera, sensor size, mirrorless or SLR...Think you can help? ;)

    So I just purchased the Canon 6D and the Canon 16-35mm f4 L lens as my landscape lens. I just thought I'd let everybody know because you all gave input (and I appreciate it). I think I will be pretty happy. Now if only the fires would stop in BC for my trip to Banff and Jasper next week. Well I...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    I went with the Canon 16-24 f4 L as my landscape lens. I think it will be very good. Perhaps once or twice a year I will buy a new lens. Maybe the next one will be for astrophotography. But I understand the sharpest lenses don't automatically make good astrophotography lenses...something about...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    Well I was looking at the F4 version of that lens, which is $300 cheaper, and supposedly sharper.

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    That Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART lens would be nice if I needed a fast lens and could put up with the restrictions of a fixed lens. I don't think I need a lens this fast for landscape photography (although I wonder how it fairs as an astrophotography lens) and I don't think I want to be restricted to...

    The best way to spend $1000 for lenses for landscapes?

    So maybe a better compromise is to get a few Sigma ART prime lenses instead of older Canon non L prime lenses. But real actual breathing people seem to like both. Besides, without looking it up I don't know if I could get two Sigma ART prime lenses for the same cost. Scratch that. Looked it...
